Covers well known ground, but still a great hard hitting actioner
I've always been a big fan of Chuck Norris, but when I saw this film about 2 years ago, I was simply blown away by the perfect combination of well choreographed martial-art action, stunt-work, and terrific training sequences. It still fascinates me now.I admit that his other movies have lame stories to exploit, and although there are elements of cheese and corn in this one too, by the end you'll no longer care. (thats if you like action movies)
Although the story is simple, it is dealt with very effectively, in that the young boy, Logan, whose family was killed when he was still a child, goes to live with his uncle Jake(Chuck Norris). Finding out that Jake used to be a world class fighter, he learns how to fight, and after joining the army rangers, the worlds best, then seeks vengeance against the men that murdered his family.
Although Chuck is in his late 50's in this film, he shows off some moves which many men in their prime could never pull off, and you can only applaud when you see how he finishes off a guy in a car at the end.(I'll say no more, except that the stunt is similar to 1978's awful and inferior 'Good Guys Wear Black')
Watch, enjoy and marvel at the brilliance off this film !
